Hotel Diablo
Ranked #248 of 283 Milan B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 12, 2008

Initially, this place seemed decent enough. The guy at the front desk was polite, the room was a good size, and the bathroom was large and clean. The only problem was the bedbugs!! Can't say much else about this place. The location was okay, fairly close to the train station (short cab ride)... the area it was in was a bit dodgy, but it was cheap...

The hostel itself is okay, nice rooms, bathrooms, standard stuff. Staff is incredibly dodgy....they over book and then try and send you off to a hostel across town (two girls in front of me had the misfortune) they sorted it out my first night but the next day after i got back from sightseeing, all my stuff was just sitting in the comon room (oh that's safe).... because there was no room for me again (and yes, i had prebooked, confirmed and paid!)....promised me they would have one ready by the time i got back...which they did, turns out it was the reception guy's room...DODGY! and did i get refund? of course not!

Even though the hotel was only €120 for a double bed and private bathroom for two nights I would not reccomend you stay here, it is not good value for money.
The taxi driver had to help us find the hotel as we arrived in the dark to Milan Central station and could not find the buses that were written on the instructions.- it is at the back of a compartment complex and it tooks us a good 15 minutes to find it once we were in.
The reception was quite friendly and helpful- the room was large-ish with a good sized bathroomwith a nice hot shower. These are the only really good points that I can say about it. Our very uncomfortable double bed was two plastic single beds held together with what looked like 'danger do not cross' tape. The large window looked out on to a brick wall which was soo close there was no curtains in the bedroom. The sheets were stained and there were cockroaches around as well.
The location wasn't too bad once we had figured out where we were- but it wasn't that central (even though there is a great take away pizza accross the road).

Was hard to find the place. Taxi driver had to get out himself to look for it. hostel isnt by itself. its in an apartment block within other hostels too. Manager was helpful, but as soon as we walked in we can smell the odour from the person sitting on the couch, which also stank out the whole reception room and hallway.
Rooms were big with bathroom. Next day there was no smell anymore.

This hotel/hostel is in an excellent location - easily accesible by number 73 bus from Linate airport. The same bus continues to the area near the cathedral. Neither journey takes very long. The accommodation itself is set back from the main street - look for number 43 Corso Marzo. It isn't immediately obvious.

The staff were very friendly and the room was clean with a very good bathroom.

While some other residents were rather noisy one night, I have no other complaints and rate the experience as very good value for not a lot of money. I booked through hostelworld
